That is actually a great time to come, This year was great we had a nice week long swell or chest plus surf. Also so far this Fall and winter we have had a decent swell every week.
Some good places to visit would be around halifax area but they are not gonna be so quiet. The southshore is a place you wanna hit up, When its good those people drive the 1.5 plus hours from the city to come surf here on the south shore. The biggest crowd we had here was when albee layer, Matt Meola and Dane reynolds were around at one location there was 25 people which has a slab and a long left. nice barrel wave. But there is about but 10 breaks within 20 mins of there and the rest had 5-10 people. plenty of lefts a reef and a couple rights. The right places to pick up anysize.
If you come this way we would be happy to take you around and show you some of the better spots with never more then 7-10 people. There are plenty of accommodations around these locations. If you really want help planning give me a private message and we can help you out the best we can!
